    • Workshop is limited to 20 people
  2. 904 Challenge postponed until June
  3. Quiltcon 2019
    • Class list released in the next week or two. This gives you a chance to decide which classes you want. Sign up as soon as possible because classes are limited.
    • MQG has a theme and color palette every year for a charity quilt – this year is “Small Piecing”
  4. Quilt Fest
    • There is a $15 fee to enter a quilt in Quilt Fest by 7/25/18. Anyone can enter.  Quilts will be turned in in September.  To enter in July you need a name, size, and story about the quilt – no photo at that point.  Not juried.  Let’s enter!!  There’s no modern category so let’s have a presence!!

New Business:

  1. A Retreat in October is in the planning stage. Look for updates!
  2. Comfort quilts for fallen police officers – we had a local officer killed in a car accident recently. @craftycop is heading up this project – we will see if we can make a quilt locally and gift it without having to go through her.
  3. RK Blocks: we will work on this at the June meeting.

Show and Tell:

  • Yvonne: Murder Mystery Quilt, May Block, Libs Elliott – free pattern on Andover Fabrics website called “Wildflower”, center of a round robin quilt

  • Kate: made her sisboom tank top and center for round robin




  • Paula, Kate and Yvonne are doing a round robin with the same fabric. It will be interesting to see how different the quilts will come out.
  • Congratulations to our Kate Alicea!!! Jennnifer Paganelli has a Free Spirit fabric line coming out in the Fall and one of the prints is named after Kate.
  • Franci won the drawing for last month’s UFO- heat press batting together
